The Graduate School Teaching Awards honor those graduate students who have made a significant contribution to undergraduate teaching. Students are nominated each spring by academic departments and programs. Winners are selected by a committee chaired by Cole Crittenden, deputy dean of the Graduate School, and comprising the academic affairs deans and staff from the McGraw Center for Teaching and Learning.

We are thrilled to announce that three of our exceptional assistants, Danielle Chase, James Roggeveen, and Bernardo Gouveia, have received this year's award.

The trio is being recognized for their contributions to our course EGR 156 Foundations of Engineering: Multivariable Calculus; part of our first year foundational engineering sequence. 

Aligning with our mission to innovate engineering education, this suite of courses presents the same math and physics as more traditional engineering programs but places a greater emphasis on problem-solving and societal impact.

The Keller Center offers more than two dozen courses enrolling 1000+ students over an academic year. The success of the Center's academic programming is largely due to the contributions of our graduate student assistant instructors. Each year we attract talented, engaged, and passionate assistants who provide insight, guidance, and support to our diverse student population and dynamic faculty. 

We are grateful to them all for their time and enthusiasm and congratulate Danielle, James, and Bernardo for their exemplary achievements.
